First We Were IV

by Alexandra Sirowy

Dear Reader,

First we were four. Now we are three. A few years ago, I came across an editorial about celebrity kids who created a religion around crystals. I rolled my eyes, but the idea stuck in my head. What if the teens were normal kids in a small town with secrets? Four friends sprung to life.

First We Were IV is the story of four friends who invent a secret society and use it to get justice for an unsolved murder, until justice turns to revenge, secrets unravel, others want in, and the secret society gets beyond out of control, costing one of the friends their life.

"Hooks readers from the first page." --Teenreads
"An intense page-turner." --Kirkus Reviews

Merlin Raj and the Santa Algorithm:
A Computer Science Dog's Tale for Kids

by D.G. Priya, illustrated by Shelley Hampe

Dear Reader,

Do kids want to read a coding book? Not as much as dog stories!

Meet Merlin Raj. This service dog helps his boy walk, has a teeny-tiny distractable obsession with socks, and is learning logic to help solve family problems.

From artists to astronauts, every job uses a computer. But getting off the ground with computational thinking doesn’t need tech. It’s all in the words.
